Our last night out in Humpty Doo before we move back in to the city again. We decided to celebrate with a dinner at the “world famous” Humpty Doo hotel.
You can there enjoy a fabulous dinner at their restaurant or
have a beer with the locals in their pub. Need to dress up? No, as long as you wear shorts and thongs you are good to go :)

The couple announced their engagement 2012 and yesterday, the wedding of Princess Madeleine and Mr Christopher O’Neill, took place in the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.
What a fairytale wedding dress!! The princess walked down the aisle wearing a Valentino Garavani dress complete with a four-meter long train. This is what I would call a proper royal wedding dress. Stunning.
This is the second royal wedding in Sweden in a short time. In June 2010, Madeleine’s older sister Crown Princess Victoria wed her personal trainer Daniel Wesling in a grand ceremony in Stockholm.
In Sweden the royal family has only ceremonial duties, such as attending award ceremonies, promoting Swedish businesses abroad and supporting charities. As the head of state, the king also receives foreign dignitaries on formal visits to Sweden.

Has to be done in the blue donger in the photo. Yepp, that is the laundry room (or spider room would probably be better suitable name). Since I wasn’t clever enough to put the washing on before 5pm I was unable to collect the washing. I tried to find my way out there at 7pm but it was impossible to see anything. That means I have to play todays basketball game in semi-dry clothes. New on my shopping list; a torch.
Welcome to Humpty Doo, a small town 40 minutes drive outside Darwin. From life in the city to life in the bush. Yeh, why not live in a “box” for a few days?
Main entrance leading to the only two areas where you can inclose yourself at night; the dongers (or containers if you so will call them). A life of luxury.
